  • In a real life incarnation of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” a woman spent around $30,000 to look like Kim Kardashian West. Claire Leeson whitened her teeth, purchased butt pads, and underwent plastic surgery to resemble the sultry Armenian starlet.  Though the looks may have come easily, the cash didn’t–the 33-year-old is now in debt. Hmm… (The Daily Mail)
  • Derek Jeter is the man everyone looks to in the new Re2pect collection from the Nike Jordan brand.  Jay Z, Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Carmelo Anthony, Spike Lee, and others all tip their hats to the baseball player as he embarks on his last season. (The Hollywood Reporter)

  • In case wearing Armani isn’t enough, the designer is launching his own residences in Miami.  Expected to open in 2016, the designer has tapped the architect of the World Financial Center in New York to design a 60-story oceanfront tower in Sunny Isles Beach. “On a project like this, where we have the benefit of partnering with a talented architect like Cesar Pelli, we get the opportunity to create something really very special — a remarkable living space, imbued with the spirit of modern elegance,”  Armani said of the project.

  • A boutique in Harlem will be the subject of the new “B.O.R.N. to Style” TV show on FYI Network on Tuesday.  The shop, called B.O.RN — which is short for borrowed, old, refurbished, new — is known for transforming the looks of every day people, and will be bringing some of the magic to the 14-episode series. “It’s really transforming people’s lives and their perceptions on what they feel and think about themselves,” said Jonathan Bodrick, the owner of the shop.

  • Net-A-Porter is being accused of dodging taxes by the British news.  Channel 4 News ran an exposé detailing that though the company made £425 million one year, they posted a loss of £24.7 million.  Through clever maneuvering — in this case it seems that the company employs a practice of paying top executives in shares — the company joins other corporate giants including Dolce & Gabbana who have been accused of tax evasion.  Net-A-Porter’s actions are seemingly legal, however, working through a loophole in the law.

    That’s so freaking sad…and I’m sure she was probably a beautiful before all of her surgery. I understand idolizing whoever you want for whatever reasons but to put yourself in debt because of it? It’s just sad…

    She could have gave that 30k to me because she do not look at Kim. But I won’t go in on her to hard because clearly she has self-esteem issues, I am pretty sure she looked much better before all of these surgeries…smh
